Landon Donovan has been enjoying life in retirement but admits that he's searching for a new role that he's passionate about.

Landon Donovan, the coach?

Jurgen Klinsmann has plenty to ponder following USMNT's poor Gold Cup

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says a lack of squad depth hurt Jurgen Klinsmann and the USMNT at the Gold Cup.

The United States had a Gold Cup to forget, as it was dumped out by Jamaica in the semifinals. Jeff Carlisle, Doug McIntyre and Jason Davis take a look at where Jurgen Klinsmann and the U.S. go from here.

Should Klinsmann's future be in doubt?

Davis (@DavisJsn): 
Absolutely. Even without considering the cost to the federation and Klinsmann's mandate to push the United States national team forward tactically and stylistically, he has overseen the worst  performance in the Gold Cup since...

Panama takes third in Gold Cup to add insult to injury for U.S.

Jurgen Klinsmann discusses the United States' Gold Cup performances and the high expectations moving forward.
United States defender DaMarcus Beasley describes what it was like to be back in the U.S. roster and the experiences the younger players in the squad can take away moving forward.

CHESTER, Pa. -- Three quick thoughts after the U.S. dropped the third-place match at the 2015 Gold Cup, losing to Panama on penalties on Saturday following a 1-1 tie to finish fourth in the tournament they won two years ago.

1. Adding insult to injury for U.S.

Perhaps it's true that neither team really wanted to be there, but you can be sure that the Americans wanted to win the game once the match kicked off. Still, Panama was clearly the hungrier of the two and the deserved winner in the end...

Brad Guzan stands tall, falls short in U.S. Gold Cup loss to Panama

United States defender DaMarcus Beasley describes what it was like to be back in the U.S. roster and the experiences the younger players in the squad can take away moving forward.
Jurgen Klinsmann discusses the United States' Gold Cup performances and the high expectations moving forward.

In a game they never wanted to play, the United States lost to Panama on penalties at PPL Park in Philadelphia. It was a fitting end to a bad tournament for Jurgen Klinsmann's team -- a flat, disinterested performance to cap off a run of flat, disinterested performances.

Klinsmann has work to do. No one on the field Saturday afternoon, perhaps bar goalkeeper Brad Guzan, can be said to have played at even a mediocre level, and these player ratings certainly reflect that reality.

Undesired third-place game still serves a purpose for United States

The ESPN FC panel debate whether or not the players from their respective national teams will have any motivation to play in the third place Gold Cup match.

CHESTER, Pa. -- There are two ways to look at Saturday's Gold Cup consolation game between the United States and Panama. On one hand, it can be viewed as little more than an inconvenience, a match the players and coaches on both teams -- having fallen short of reaching Sunday's final in nearby Philadelphia -- would just as soon not play at all.

On the other, it's still a chance for the sides to represent their countries, make a little bit of appearance money and, for the team that is victorious...

U.S. defeated 2-1 by Jamaica -- where it ranks among worst USMNT losses

USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann gave his thoughts on the performances of John Brooks and Ventura Alvarado against Jamaica.

The unthinkable happened on Wednesday night in Atlanta: The USMNT lost at the Gold Cup, before the final and to someone other than Mexico. With every expectation that they'd beat Jamaica on home soil, the Americans fell behind thanks to poor set-piece defending and couldn't claw their way back. Their best wasn't good enough.

Where does the loss rank among the U.S.' worst of all time? Here's our top 10 (1 = worst loss of all time).
